We are seeking scholarly contributions and critical examinations focused on the young adult novel and cultural phenomenon The Hunger Games. This book intends to interrogate the features that make Hunger Games such an important cultural artifact. Despite the recent book of commentary written by popular YA novelists—The Girl Who Was On Fire— few scholars have paid critical attention to Collins and Hunger Games. We are looking for essays that will begin to fill the gap in the scholarly conversation about YA literature by investigating the social and rhetorical work achieved in and through The Hunger Games.

Hi,

I am seeking essays in English to include in a volume tentatively entitled "Dreamscapes Projected: The Oneiric in Italian Film Culture," to be published by FDU Press.

This volume will explore the oneiric in Italian cinema, from filmic representations and visualizations of dreams, nightmares, hallucinations, dream-like and hypnagogic states, to dreams as cinematic allegories and metaphors, and the theoretical frameworks applied to the investigation of this relationship. Relevant comparative studies between Italian and American, European and non-Western cinema are encouraged.

The Golden Age: Nostalgia in Word and Image

The Golden Age is the Tenth Annual Postgraduate Conference hosted by the English Programme, University of Dundee, in conjunction with the Scottish Word and Image Group. It is intended to investigate the diverse applications and conceptions of the term 'The Golden Age'. The phrase most obviously resonates with the theme of nostalgia, which is popularly understood as a wistful longing for the past but which also denotes homesickness. While 'The Golden Age' typically conjures up idealized and nostalgic visions of the past, it is equally suggestive of a discontented present, and it even gestures forward to utopian visions of future golden ages.
